Wow. Two "very"s. Must be all right, then.



No, it doesn't. Hundreds of thousands of uneventful Boeing 747-100 trips preceded the ill-fated flight of TWA 500. All that can be said about PEDs is...

But I don't imagine either will work very well on a bicycle in rural France.

I use GMM on an iPAQ and a Wing. Neither is a laptop. I would like to be confident that GPS Maps on iPhone is the "same" as GMM. But I'm not.

Run msconfig and boot up without half of the automatic programs. If symptoms persist, turn those back on and disable half of what remains. Continue halving until the problem goes away.

Ditto the Senn HD414. Rare, if you can find them at all.
